WVAS En Plein Air - One More Time!

For those of you who regret not getting to the recent painting days, ‘en plein air’, and for
those who did come along, there is a special day coming up.

We have been invited to participate in an exhibition linked with the Stamford ‘Apple Day’
event in October. Thursday,18 th August, has been set aside as a day for visiting and working
in the Stamford Orchard. Any resulting work will be displayed in October, (Saturday, 1st )
alongside work from other representatives of Stamford’s community – a junior school, a
youth group and ‘new’ artists. It is anticipated that the ‘en plein air’ session will be a starting
point for any apple/tree/orchard related images which come as a result of that day. Work
can be in any medium but, as for our own exhibitions, it needs to be mounted and framed.
The size of work has not been specified but a request for ‘not too big’ has been made, as
there will be other works to be shown in the same area.

The painting day is open to both exhibitor and associate members. It was felt that our
involvement with the project will provide beneficial publicity for the WVAS and having
contributed to the recent Jubilee Celebrations, it was gratifying to note the interest for our
society that our display raised.

Please support this venture. Contact me if you are interested; I am liaising with Sam Roddan,
the organiser, and will confirm final details with her. Cezanne has his many still life
paintings with apples – what will you find at the orchard to inspire you?

Come and find out!
